- The sheer size of the dating playground is overwhelming Remember that Sex and the City episode when Carrie says she’s dating the city? That might be one of her wiser phases. Sometimes it can feel like the adventures the city presents are even better than actual dating prospects, and the pressure to juggle both exploring and a search for love may feel overwhelming. The same goes for navigating budding relationships that cross borough lines—is that one Hinge date worth the endless subway odyssey?
No matter how isolated you are and how lonely you feel, if you do your work truly and conscientiously, unknown friends will come and seek you.
